Tomorrow is December the 1st. What better way to welcome the last month of the year than by put up the Christmas tree! It's usually a family affair when it comes to setting up and decorating, but I tend to be a Nazi (Grinch?) when it comes to these things (cooking/baking included) so I spent three relaxing hours with Tank putting hooks on ornaments and hanging them. Whoo hoo!
To the tree, I added some of new ornaments I picked up last year on clearance. Have I mentioned that I love end of the season/holiday clearances?? Not only does it save a tonne of money, there's no running around stores and stress as you've already got everything! I did, however buy a couple boxes of candy canes and re-used the little gingerbread men cut out ornaments I made the previous year. Super cute!
Tank's pretty excited about this tree. I'm sure most of you can guess why. :P
Thank goodness for shatterproof balls! Ha ha, B-A-L-L-S. She's loving the felt tree skirt and can't get enough of it. Notice how it's a bit disheveled? It was a lot worse before.
I'll probably pick up more decorations as they go on sale. We still have to hang the lights and some other things, but I'm super happy the tree is up! The house across the street have all their outdoor decorations up and the house a couple doors down from them have had their tree up for about a week. I felt a little left out, so here it is! :)
